personally to me Freedom always looked similar to a Gundam x from the After War series spoiler[http://safebooru.org//images/63/7d67f7ebd648aeb1acecfdd72e6e295a62cfe57b.png?62703]

but that aside i think its really cool that their making gundam busts, i just find it weird that the first bust is from Seed i would have thought it would have been the rx 78 or a zaku.

Since we're in the Seed mode wonder if the Akatsuki will get any lovin'?

God Gundam isn't universally loved either, so it's best when you don't obnoxiously state your opinion like it's fact, m'kay? Very Happy

Ok Japan, after all these life size models, where the hell is the amusement parks rides where you get to ride in a Gundam or Eva cockpit? Huh Japan?

I guess Gundam is so big in Japan, people don't mind standing in a non-functional life size mockup for a picture. Its cool, but i hate see how much money they're gouging from them.

True, because of their wings. But I guess that only applies to Freedom and not Strike Freedom.

Anyway I guess because they already have a 1/1 scale RX78 in Japan. And in AU Gundams, Seed is the most popular, based on its ratings back in the day.

And lol @ haters.

Aw man, I'd live to sit in the cockpit of a Gundam.

Not so much a CE Gundam like this one, but hell, if I had the chance, I'd probably do it, anyway.

I'm going to assume you're from the States, right? Outside of W, G Gundam was the most popular Gundam in the States, achieving high ratings and good merchandise selling. Yes, we ALL know the story of how the Japanese didn't like G and how the merchandise only sold fairly, but then again, the Japanese don't always have the best taste, do they? Then again, most Americans worship that shitty G Gundam dub anyway, so it's even Steven.
